It sells out every year, and there’s no other event like it in Chicago; it’s Chicago’s Best WingFest. Back again for its seventeenth year on Sunday, February 21, 2016, WingFest will return to the Bailey Auditorium located at 1340 West Washington in Chicago, from 1p.m. to 5p.m. WingFest is complete with tailgating, a nearly endless supply of Chicago’s best chicken wings from 25 area restaurants, competitive wing eating, six categories of wing competition, and lots of fun!
Each year around 25 local wing-slinging eateries enter WingFest. Participating establishments may enter their wings of choice in two of the following categories: Mild, Hot, BBQ, and Exotic. The following were proclaimed winners in 2015, in a double-blind judged competition: Best Mild Wing: Gators, Best Hot Wing: Output, Best BBQ Wing: Buffalo Wings & Rings, Best Exotic Wing: Estrella Negra, Rookie of the Year: Whisk, and earning the most cumulative points for the coveted Best of the Fest: Buffalo Wings & Rings.
